Review: Green Giant bills this as "walk-away cooking," reminiscent of the days when home cooks shoved a pot roast into the oven for an easy meal. The giant has cut the potatoes, carrots, red pepper and sugar snap peas. All you do is toss them with chicken breast strips, vegetable oil and the seasoning packet, then wait for the oven-roasted aroma to fill your kitchen. No denying it's quick and easy, and the veggies cooked crisp-tender. Still, an overabundance of garlic and onion powder filled the dish with an artificial flavor, more reminiscent of chemistry class than Mom's kitchen.
